OK, adding it to the queue.
I will give it that: one of the best mind-job endings in film. Up there with, "No, Luke, I am your father."
Agreed. I was thinking about this...
...in SF, there is always some sort of bad guy / warning theme prevalent to the Speculative Near Future genre. It was the Red Menace (or Nazis, in the old Serials), impending WWIII, nuclear doom, and in recent years environmental has been a big thing, but it seems like the big one for the last decade has been zombies. If there is a recurrent theme in Speculative Near Future stories, it is the zombie. While they are not SF, per se, as they are often horror, it feels like the zombie movie is THE Speculative Near Future genre of the last 10 years.
Resident Evil x4
28 Days/Weeks Later
The Living Dead
World War Z (upcoming)
Day of the Dead 1-3
etc, etc, etc.
Be it viral, bioengineering, unknown, or biowarfare, the zombie flick, I think, has been our speculative fiction movie of the last decade.
Thoughts? Is there another major theme in speculative near-term future fiction?
One more to go to tie.
Tim, this one's for you, brother. Oorah.
We did it.
Tim's vision is now complete. We have posted more than any Fan Force on the whole planet. And we have the best Fan Force on the planet.
Way to go, troops!
And we did it in time for the 10th anniversary party.
Hip hip hooray! They can all go cry in their fish and chips!
This calls for a celebration!
mmmMmmMmMmmm fish n chips mmMmMMmMMMMmmmm
Nice, way to go. Wish I was more help.
yeah, me too. ... but I already knew WE were the best FanForce on the Planet.
I'm looking for the TV thread, if anyone is out there to help look.
We left those FFUK'ers in the dust! We are already 120 posts ahead of them. Ha!
Micky D's has SW happy meal toys!!!!
I know Abby loved it the other day when she got a cool little light up lightsaber.
I have nothing yet, but I must collect them all. Car-less at the moment, getting it repaired & beefed up before we drive it to Cali.
Hmm....I think we must find another conquest.
OR....152 more posts here to reach 13K for Kit.....I cannot find a particularly active FF thread.
I have a full time, spanish/english bilingual receptionist position open in the DTC. Let me know if you or anyone you know are interested.
Didn't know where to post this, but here goes (same post as in MG forums):
'Tis the last of the vacation season! I'll be gone Sept 1st-7th, and guess where! Yep, back to Omaha! Moose and R2-Central gang has graciously invited me to their BIG two day droid build weekend. I'll be staying at his place getting AL working. Also some sightseeing. I've been to Omaha 6 times now and haven't really seen it (except the inside of convention centers and hotels). Also planning to visit the state capitol on way home. Maybe camp overnight at Lake McCaughnehy (I think that's how it's spelled). Any other places along the way I should see?
And the real reason for this post: I'm desperately in need of a cat sitter!! Got two older cats that need food, water, and attention! If anyone is willing to help out, pm me. I can't afford to pay the vet or any shelter $25-$40 a day. Just need someone once a day to feed and play with them for a bit. Thank you in advance for any help on this.
